Rewilding the body

August 6, 2018


For years I shaved my armpits daily. There was a real stigma around female body hair and I adhered to getting rid of it religiously. These days I love seeing women with different body hair. Sometimes I shave it off if it’ll look better with a certain outfit, but this process of rewilding my life (which includes the body) is also shifting perceptions of beauty. I love my greying hair; wide, bare feet; crowlines and belly rolls. It’s all part of who I am. I don’t want to look like a hairless baby. I’m not twenty. Middle age rolled into town and brought with her a truckload of wisdom and acceptance and left with a barrelfull of fucks that I no longer give. I wouldn’t change that for my old smooth size 10 figure with all her insecurities, not for all the money in the world. #dailyconnectionwithnature day77
